Swansea hopeful Clement connection can sway Chelsea defender Terry

Swansea have confirmed that they have held talks Chelsea legend John Terry regarding a move to Liberty Stadium this summer.

Terry is set to become a free agent in the coming days, following a 22-year association with the Blues, and a number of clubs are said to be chasing his services.

However, Swans chairman Huw Jenkins remains hopeful that club manager Paul Clement, who has worked with Terry at Chelsea, can convince the player to join the Welsh side.

Jenkins said: "I know Paul has spoken to John and his agent. I don't know what his preferences are because he has options and will go with what suits his family.

"We are well covered in that area and quite strong but I know there is interest with Paul and he spoke with John and his agent himself.

"When Paul knows a players well it is an obvious one for us. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't but we will always try and do that."
